I read an article the other day about Mother Teresa while I was waiting for a doctor's appointment. In it were private letters she had written, dark letters about her private despair.
Though she worked tirelessly for God and devoted her entire life to helping others and serving the Lord, she herself felt abandoned by Him. Yet she continued to serve, continued to pray, continued to minister to countless thousands in His name. She never gave up. She allowed faith to take over and that faith reassured her that though she couldn't 'feel' Him, He was there anyway.
Don't we all go through times like this? I know I do. But I won't let go and I won't give up. God is here, there, and everywhere. He is with me even when the dark voices try to convince me otherwise. That was a promise made to us. I believe the promise. I have known the hope.
Lord, I asked for help and none came. I waited anyway. And you gave me the answer I sought. I will follow your greatest command and I will love unconditionally those around me. I will let my actions speak when I find myself speechless. I will trust in You to bring to pass whatever You have in mind. I will leave it in Your hands and let you handle it. In Jesus' name, I pray these things. Amen.
Human beings may, and more often than not, will let you down greatly. They will hurt your feelings and disappoint you. It's just one of those unchangeable features of life.
God never will. Turn to Him for the answers and you will get them.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
